A NOTE FOR PARENTS
Although Block C is a private off-campus residence, it is accredited by the university of Stellenbosch and therefore incorporates a body of team leaders to ensure students experience student life and manage the safety and guidance of students living at Block C.
RESIDENT HEAD OF HOUSE DEPUTY HEAD OF HOUSE PRIMARI HEAD STUDENTS FACILITY MANAGER
Whilst allowing students to enjoy a student lifestyle away from the more rigid rules of university res, a looser structural system is still required to ensure the safety of students, assist students in personal and academic adaptation and to ensure that their living environment is conducive to studying. Our team leaders are here to guide your child/ren should the need arise, and to ensure the residence itself is well-kept. They are a team of friendly students and ex-students who are here to build a relationship with your child/ren and to assist with any problems should they arise.
